Tenor Zach Borichevsky is “equipped with a flexible, bright voice that already has made him one of the most sought-after singers of his generation.” Mr. Borichevsky is known as a “star-level tenor” with a “precise, nuanced high-register singing and agile acting”, paired with a “magical sense of complete spontaneity that comes from being in total command of the instrument.” A series of significant débuts have established Mr. Borichevsky as one of the most thrilling vocal talents to appear on the international stage; he has created widely celebrated international performances in roles such as Rodolfo in La bohème with Finnish National Opera, Romeo in Roméo et Juliette for Teatro Municipal de Santiago in Chile, and Alfredo in La traviata for the Glyndebourne Festival.
Early in the current season, Borichevsky stepped into the lead role of Faust for Detroit Opera – of this performance, OperaWire wrote that “Borichevsky revealed himself to be a masterful and technically competent lyric tenor with an innate cut and ring… [he] delighted and captivated the audience with his presence.” Zach recently expanded his repertoire to include this role, having joined the Lyric Opera of Chicago to cover the role in their 2022 production, in addition to performing his first Narraboth in Salome with the Spoleto Festival, USA. In that 21-22 season he also performed Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus for Palm Beach Opera, reprised the role of Alfredo in La Traviata for Opera Grand Rapids, performed Cassio in Washington National Opera’s production of Otello, and Rodolfo in La bohéme with Toledo Opera. In concert, he sang the tenor solo in Verdi’s Requiem for the National Philharmonic at the Kennedy Center and recorded a virtual Messiah with New Choral Society. This season, in addition to Faust, Borichevsky will reprise his honed performance of Rodolfo in Nashville Opera’s production of La boheme and return to Aspen Music Festival as a soloist in Berlioz’s Requiem.
